So we did some cracking business selling KP to Man CIty whilst they had our pants down. I'm surprised Kinnear didn't go into more detail about that in his recent interviews.

It was great business for a home grown player, cost us nothing, we made £40 million profit.

They had our pants down, because, apparently, a lot of folk, rated him at around double that.

Can you now understand it !!!

I'm sure you're smarter than you come across, don't be so hard on yourself :P

It was in relation to us supposedly being shafted over the KP deal, despite apparently getting a great deal, and that we would be shafted by any fee we get for Mesllier.

Try to keep up Velo ;-)

Illan Meslier has tremendous pontential. He is young and can only get better as long as he stays fit. Value wise would be extremely high
and if its Manure asking, then add on another 10 million. Market Value has to 30 million..... The big question if you got the money who would you replace him with?

After yesterday: a lot! If he hadn't made the 3 blinding saves that he did make yesterday, we'd have been 2 down in 20 minutes and the result yesterday would have been a lot different...

Would be thrilled if he stuck around for another 10 - 15 years.

Given his age and his ability, I would imagine he'd be one of the most expensive keepers in the world about now.

Had a very good game. He seemed up for it. I think his best save was from Gallacher when Gallacher was flagged for offside - it looked a tight call too and am glad he saved it cos they may have overturned it on VaR if the ball had ended up in the net.

Am hoping this season Messlier makes a big leap forward in his development into a top keeper.

I was disappointed that one was called offside because it was a cracking save. Meslier's save of the season so far. It reminded me of a scene years ago. Bruce Grobelaar made a finger tip save and the referee gave a goal kick. Most goalies would have gladly taken the goal kick. Grobelaar was livid yelling at the ref that it was a corner and gesturing with his hand that he'd saved it.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs
